Acknowledgment to the Junior Chamber of Commerce, Sponsors of the Inaugural Parade

The warm hand of welcome extended to the National Air Races, their pilots and visitors, through the medium of the All-Southern California Inaugural Parade, was the vision, the plan and the execution of the Junior Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles. To this alert organization of young executives goes full credit for a gigantic undertaking well and faithfully done.

Involving the participation of many Southern California suburban communities, large military, civic and social organizations, massed bands, floats, pageants and more than 2,500 individuals... plus the coordination of the induction into office of Mayor-elect Frank Shaw, who gave willing consent to assume Grand Marshalship of the parade, the Junior Chamber of Commerce exhibited real ability and leadership.

With grateful appreciation we acknowledge the splendid work of the committee members who, under the chairmanship of Edward S. Shattuck, Nelson Praigg and Wallace Dickey successfully staged one of the most colorful and inspiring parades in the history of Southern California.

May the young blood of this live organization move many more times to victory!

The Sponsoring Committee of the Nation Air Races is happy to join with the Junior Chamber of Commerce in expressing appreciation to the posts of American Legion represented in the Inaugural Parade, the Service Clubs organizations bands, communities, business and industrial organizations, firms, and individuals; to Miss Jean Harlow, guest of honor and to Mayor-elect Frank Shaw, who graciously relinquished parade plans of his own to join in the inaugural ceremonies of the National Air Races.

The National Air Races---A Big Business Project
(Continued from Page 25)

Meanwhile the contest committee has outlined air rules, laid out the racing courses, determined eligibility requirements and selected its operating and assisting staffs. The traffic committee has investigated and recommended routes to the airport from all parts of the state. The speaker's bureau has informed luncheon clubs and similar groups of the nature and scope of the air races, and the director of special events has interested municipalities, civic and fraternal groups sponsoring special days.

Behind the scenes are the comptrollers, regulating expenditures, checking receipts and managing the corporation's finances. Hundreds of policemen perform invaluable service in maintaining order and expediting the flow of traffic where a lack of cooperation would result in chaos.

From a dusty, technical and not particularly interesting exhibition of flying, the National Air Races have become the worlds greatest aviation sports classic that recognizes no rivals. It is a rendezvous for sportsmen, the smart set, the engineer and executive. Its universal appeal, its steady growth and its valuable scientific function is making its significance known world wide.
